About

“...the end of the performance is a hurricane of sound. The band holds out to the very last second squeezing out every last drop of energy.” - 3voor12 Utrecht, the Netherlands



“Tousle haired Nadja has a dreamy voice drenched in the same warm moonlight and starlight rays as Beth Gibbons, Margo Timmins and Hope Sandoval.” - Birmingham Live, U.K.



"...a unique and mature sound...exciting use of soundscapes and vocals promises a lot for the future." - Liberation Day Festival, the Netherlands



“Each member of the band is clearly skilled in their area, but like in so many art works it’s the coming together which yields the true beauty. The seamless union of technology and human artistry produced a mesmerizing performance.” - Bath Gigs, U.K.
